It really depends on what you are trying to accomplish with the wireless. If you just want to offer basic wireless service, any of the 5-10 Wi-Fi vendors offer a capable service.

However if wireless is to be used for a primary access method, like to delivering digital learning, more attention is required. We have been comparing the top 5 vendors (including Ruckus and Xirrus) and have come across a common thread that most vendors offer two classes of products, typically marketed as ‘affordable’ and ‘performance’ (Ruckus calls this mid-range) solutions.

The first is typically less expensive with fewer services, while the other has more capabilities and higher pricing. Xirrus seems to be the outlier of the group as they offer a complete suite of identical services across all its Access Points.

We have yet to make selection as we will be bringing 3 vendors in for a head to head comparison and see whose marketing is for real. Personally, I look forward to Xirrus demoing their full Application Control in the AP at the edge and keeping the students' social networking traffic off my network.
